About this Cook
Hi! My name is Melissa. I love to cook. I'm one of those people that get snickered at in the home stores when they act out their own cooking show in the kitchen displays :) I cant help it!
My favorite things to cook
Dont know, I love to make anything savory. I'll leave the baking to my sister. She is a culinary student at the San Diego Culinary Institue. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
The line up, as we kids use to call it... My family is from Mexico so we made tamals all the time. Everyone had their station and their job. :)
My cooking triumphs
On my and my fiance's 3rd year together... we made these steaks marinated in a fab dressing that is made locally in CA. I think it was some of the best meat we'd ever had :) I've never been able to duplicate it :(
My cooking tragedies
At the tender age of 10, my cousin and I tried to make an Angel Food cake from scratch... It came out an Angel Flat cake... it was horrible... not even the cats would eat it!

Mom's Zucchini Bread
I just made this and followed the directions as is. Only thing I left out was the nuts since my husband doesn't like them. It turned out really good. I think I'll sub some apple sauce instead of the oil next time around since it came out kind of oily. Other than that, its a good recipe and a good base to play around with. I'll be making this again.
